Babysitter organised, tickets purchased months ago now somewhere to meet to relax before the show. The weather certainly helped but sitting out the front in the bustle of the city while relaxing with a lovely wine recommended by the staff & a charcuterie tasting plate...More

Excellent choice of wines and some very good food, terrific rissotto and schnitzels, plus good appetizers. I was too full to go for dessert, but the "apple crumble custard trifle" seems the ultimate!

Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
